French composer and former professor at Columbia University Tristan Murail is widely regarded as one of the icons of contemporary music. The Ensemble Cairn presents it's recording of pieces from Murail's Portulan cycle which were composed between 1998 and 2011 and describe collection of landmarks, charting the reference points of the composer's life and career: places he has lived, beloved pieces of music, and books and stories important to his artistic development - "a sort of autobiography through metaphors" (Murail). Cairn Ensemble was founded in 1998. Jérôme Combier is it's artistic director, and Guillaume Bourgogne it's musical director. Cairn Ensemble's ambition is to create high-quality contemporary music concerts. Some of Cairn's concerts confront other art forms, such as the plastic arts, photography and video, as well as other types of music such as jazz, improvisation and traditional music. The Cairn Ensemble strives to be a group with conductor as well as a group that gives rigorous performances of chamber music.
